Hi friends!! I’ve been meaning to share this post for a while now and it comes highly requested! So many of you have asked about Brexton’s sleep schedule as well as what the girls’ sleep schedule looks like now that they’re a little older! Today I’m sharing that and a really great semi-annual sale at Soma where I find all of my best jammies!
Brexton is 7 months now (yeah, I have a few months to update here in blog land and baby book, ha!) and he is finally sleeping so good! I plan to do a full blog post on how we got him to start sleeping and the (many) methods we tried this time. With the girls, we didn’t have an issues sleep training and only had to use one method for about a week and they’ve been good sleepers since! With B, we had to try lots of different things because it turns out that he’s a big ol’ momma’s boy and just wanted to see me during the night hours! We fixed that and now we’re sleeping 11-13 hours per night! As promised, I will share all the details of that soon, but I wanted to start out by sharing his sleep schedule!
With as much traveling as we do, I only use this as a guideline because if we aren’t home it doesn’t always look this way! However, if we are home, we are pretty strict on his sleep schedule so that he has a great time when he’s awake! Brexton doesn’t get too upset unless he is sleepy or hungry, so we can fix those two things and be prepared for when those times are! We do not follow any certain schedule such as moms on call or baby wise, but I do an eat/play/sleep/repeat loose schedule. This is just what works for us and what worked with my other two kiddos as well!
Brexton’s 7 Month Old Sleep Schedule
(then he eats + plays)
8:30-9am NAP 1
(usually sleeps around 1-2 hours)
12:30-1pm NAP 2
(usually sleeps around 1-2.5 hours)
4:00-4:30 *omits if NAP 2 is longer than 2 hours*
He was waking up around 11 and 4am, but we’ve since trained him and he sleeps straight through those times now! If he does wake up, it’s briefly and he puts himself right back to sleep!
As for the girls, they are waking up around 8-8:30 on these summer mornings! Laikyn doesn’t take a nap much anymore, but Lennie needs one around 1 pm and Laikyn will either nap or have quiet time in her room! She needs the rest. I try to plan for all of the kids to sleep at the same time around Brexton’s 2nd nap time! when this happens, it’s GLORIOUS! They are going to bed around 8:30-9…sometimes later since it’s summer! When we start school, we will be much more strict on bedtimes and it will be 8pm on the dot or before!
Would yall be interested in me sharing his eating and play schedule too? Maybe a day in the life post? I need to update yall on our favorite things, too! One of MY favorite things is definitely Soma pajamas, bras and robes! I LIVE in Soma jammies and seriously love them so much! I’ve been wearing them for years (I think since they were on Oprah’s Favorite Things circa 2010 haha) and my mom discovered them and got them for all of us for Christmas. Seriously, they are like the softest most buttery-feeling material jammies in the world! They’re SO GOOD and the best time to get them is during their semi-annual sale!
Soma’s Semi-Annual sale is going on now through July 2 and you can take an extra 30% off all sale items, bras are $13.99 and up, and an extra 50% off panties when you buy 6 or more! There are so many good things that you can get now for a fraction of the price! The bras are really great quality! My favorite ones are the Balconette and I was recently introduced to the Enbliss Wireless Bralette which is AMAZING for nursing moms! I have been living in it and it’s SO SO comfortable but gives you shape!
Let me know if you shop the semi-annual sale and if you get something good! I am grabbing a few more pairs of nursing-friendly jammies and definitely another Enbliss wireless bralette! I am obsessed with it! I also realllllyyyy love this robe because it’s perfect for lounging around the house but it also doubles as a nursing cover if you have a baby and company after! It’s definitely a must-have if you are looking to stock your post-baby pajama department!
I’ve linked up lots of my favorites here! Can’t wait to see what yall get and what you think about the softness! I mean, I cannot tell you enough how soft they are!!! Grab some for yourself and then thank me later! 😉
Have a great day, friends!
